Get the Look: Nicole Miller NYFW Nails

Backstage at New York Fashion Week SS16

Happy New York Fashion Week, beauties! The Spring/Summer 2016 shows are in full swing and I am obsessing over the beauty looks I’ve seen coming down the runways so far.

One of my fav nail art looks was spotted backstage at Nicole Miller’s SS16 show on Friday where butter LONDON’s lead manicurist, Katie Jane Hughes, created a fashion-forward nail design that perfectly complemented the fun, edgy collection.


“I created this bold nail look to play off of the street art inspired clothing in the collection. Black nails and edgy details are going to be a trend for spring. Spring beauty this season isn’t about playing by the rules,” Katie said.

The graphic, splatter-effect nail art featured a pop of color that mimics the bold street art and graffiti patterns found throughout the collection. These nail art designs complemented the poppy brights and graffiti prints of Nicole Miller’s “Street Sweet” collection perfectly.

Want to get the look? I got the scoop from Katie on how she did it:

Step 1: Apply two coats Nail Lacquer in Cotton Buds.

Step 2: Dip a bobby pin into Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. Position the bobby pin over the nail and blow through the middle to create a splatter effect on each nail.

Step 3: With a new bobby pin, repeat the process with Nail Lacquer in Easy Peasy (a new shade launching in April ‘16!) on various nails on both hands.

Step 4: Lastly, apply one coat of Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat to create a high-shine finish.

So fun, right? Stay tuned for more beauty scoop from NYFW coming up soon!
